we should see. you say we should see will "les miserables." >> this is one -- i consider this movie to be a cinematic revolution. the fact that they're singing live. this is such a huge deal for movies because most musicals have a recorded sound track. so the actors prerecord it three or four months prior. by being able to sing live, they're able to change their emotions and not be married to the prerecord vocals. i sat down with anne hathaway and i talked to her about this benefit of singing live and is this thank is what she had to say. >> i remember at the end of the second day of the lovely ladies of the tooth pulling thinking, oh, god, that was as far as i had intended to go with my performance and i haven't sung. i have no idea what tomorrow will bring. so all this preparation -- i had to build on it kind of in the moment and if we recorded many months prior to that, then of course i wouldn't have been able to do that. >> brian: she attractive in person? >> i definitely think so. i love anne hathaway. i think she's absolutely gorgeous. in the movie, she's so phenomenal and it'

? but this with the consumer confidence plunging how do you make sense of it so soon after the elections? >> it was a miserable election. wasn't it. the whole time we had a small conversation. the president ran a pretty negative campaign and didn't win a mandate on big stuff. he did talk about his desire to increase taxes which may go to melissa's point. but after an elect like this. there isn't that goodwill. there isn't that kind of national coming together that you might have seen for, say, bill clinton or ronald reagan and their reelection. people are pretty bummed out. alisyn: tell us what the larger issue is. does this mean people won't be spending as much on christmas gifts in how do it translate to what it means to the economy? >> it's always hard to reconcile how people feel and how they act. we know you may feel like you shouldn't spend a lot of money but when push comes to showf end up buying an extra gift. soy don't think it means christmas is doomed. but like you were saying before. people are not feeling hopeful about what's going on and they are not alone. when i talk to economists they are wond
of this long range ballistic missile launch. the one in april failed miserably. and for the first time then they admitted that it did fail publicly. this time they extended the window and did not invite foreign journalists to watch this and simply announced when it was successful. they didn't want to take a chance of it failing again. the north koreans trying to time this to coincide with the death of their, their leader a year ago, and so that's why they're carrying this out this week. it is an attention-geting exercise. most u.s. officials believe. the pentagon has been notably silent in reaction to the launch last night, jenna. jenna: it has certainly gotten a lot of our attention and we'll be talking about it today. jennifer, thank you. >> reporter: thank you very much. jon: for more on the north korean launch let's bring in am gas door john bolton, former ambassador to the u.n. good morning ambassador. >> good morning jon. jon: what should the u.s. response should be? >> i think our policy or north korea has been wrong for a long time. i'm in the in favor of a long shift in policy
of the south. they would make a miserable addition to any portion of the population of the united states. to another friend he wrote a week later that the only difference between the peons of mexico and slaves of the south is their color. he sent us for making these peons voters and citizens of the united states, it should not be thought of until we give out news about. so these are hardened thoughts on what's happening in mexico. the transformation occurred after only three months in mexico. he told the third friend, he said, although i was for annexing of the mexico before he came here, yet i now doubt whether it's worth it. so much for mexico's people are not better than the country. harden's evolution from this expansion is introducing a phobic cynic of the war was a rapid one, but it wasn't uncommon. hardin's views are shared by many in the army. like i said, midwesterner so do most of the csm for the war with mexico's, but many decided it wasn't such a great idea after all. their exposure of the land led them to question the future of manifest destiny and frankly commanders were no

miserable. i would prefer to keep the debt ceiling as far away from the fiscal cliff discussion as possible. if you intermingled them, we lose. guest: the debt ceiling is one of the most ridiculous policies we have. you can vote to spend more money and tax less and in the fact you are also voted to increase the amount the government borrows and you can refuse to raise the debt ceiling. we should be eliminating the debt ceiling. you automatically vote to raise the desolate when you vote to spend money. the idea that we have to go through this whole thing in february again is ridiculous. host: oklahoma, independent line, good morning. caller: this republican party is a joke. they have done nothing to work with this president. they are a bunch of southern republicans. they cannot handle a black man telling them from a leadership position. they take an allegiance to grover norquist. give me a break. the allegiance should go to the united states of america were host: is your solution? caller: i would get rid of all of them, that's what i would do, thank you. host: will leave the bear. -- we will

apparently it's going to be said a lot this awards season, very long title, less miserables, moonrise kingdom, salmon fishing in the yemen and silver linings playbook. those comedy movies, there's a little zing to the zang there. there's some different, smaller, quirkier movies and that's what we see the hollywood foreign press do a lot of times. there will be a lot of star power at the 70th annual golden globe awards this year hosted by tina faye and aimee poehler, got nominations for best am stress in a comedy series. women will be in full force. here is a couple of things that stood out, people who did not get nominated, anthony hopkins did not get nominated for "hitchco "hitchcock" although helen mirren did and no jamie foxx although leonardo and quentin tarantino nominated for best director and screen play but no jamie foxx once again. don? >> no jamie foxx. any other factors? >> reporter: no jamie foxx. >> any other actors nominated? >> reporter: oh, yeah. you know what here is where the hollywood foreign press likes, they like star power, they love a-listers on the red carpet and there
." >> brian: let's talk about "les miserables." am i going to be pleased with this? >> yeah. here is the deal, they did a thing called live singing with this movie. it's very rare in musicals because most musicals, they record the music three or four months prior to going on set. so when the actors get there, they have to mime the lyrics. this time they sing live into the camera. the emotion is happening right there. and what at this was sat down with hugh jackman recently. here is us, we live sing our interview. here is hugh jackman and myself. >> tell me the positives and negatives of singing live ♪ ♪ the negatives are if you don't have a score ♪ ♪ like during this interview ♪ we are pretty much singing the same notes all the time ♪ >> steve: awesome. >> gretchen: very cute. >> we were totally singing. they do live sing. it's the most beloved musical of all time. it's been seen by over 60 million people and opens christmas day. >> gretchen: christmas day also opens "parental guidance." it's a family movie. i have a 7 and 9-year-old, can i bring them to this movie? >> here is the

%. and it's not about being a miser. it's not about wanting to save money. it's about prudence. it's about sound judgments. it's about common sense. what do we know from the 1988 stafford act? here's what we know. what we know is when we changed the cost share to an appropriate level so that we don't get things done on the federal government's taxpayer dime without significant participation of local input, what the studies show is that during that one-year period, the federal government saved $3 billion because projects didn't get funded that weren't priorities because of the 65% federal contribution and 35% cost share. so what this does is reintroduce the 65% federal payment and 35% cost share to do that. and, again, most of these projects aren't going to start until 2015. so priorities are important. so we're borrowing $60 billion -- and this is just the first bill, i'm told, and i'm sure we're going to have to spend money. but should we not be more prudent with how we spend dollars that are going to be borrowed against our children's future? all this says is revert it back to what it's
